  • nachi

    hi guys,
    this month was really crazy for newr15.i hav been waiting for it like crazy.

    so when there was no news of it on 25th jan..so i personally mailed to backoffice yamaha..

    according to their reply ..they hav no plans to launch new r15.

    trust me guys..this is the truth…if u dont believe me then mail it to them urself…they wll reply within 1-2 days…

    there is some guy on net saying that he got a reply from yamaha that they wll be launching in jan …its fake…

    i dont know abt this pic but it seams to me now that someone has modified the bike and has put up this pic…

    if i offended someone i am sorry…but this is what i feel after my research .

    cheers

  • biniyamin

  • nachi
  • Pranav

    I still liked the old model better. except for the tyres ie. But, as far as i’v read, it apparently does not have tubeless tyres
    no comments on whether its just a rumor or not

  • Hemant

    It was a rumour. I also contacted Yamaha and got the response that they are not launching new R15. So, don’t know where this rumour came from. Now, I am confused between R15 and CBR250 which Honda will be launching in April. CBR 250 is more powerful than R15 but R15 looks much more beautiful than CBR. Please help !!!!!…

  • http://www.motorbeam.com brojeswar; DAMAI

    outstanding. Sure to buy within 15th of this month.

  • Gururaj Padaki

    I am tired of waiting for this Bike to hit market.. :-(

  • Gash Demon

    not fake .. i knw because i am a photoshop pro ..there is nothing fake abt it.. new r15 is comming.. yamaha always updates there machines.. and the new update is one we all bin waiting for..

  • k72Racing Team

    Waiting for this machine ….

    @MotorBeam : Can you updated some Evidences from yamaha or from a magazine , such that it will be worth of waiting.

    • fas

      K72, we did update a picture from ACI which had a rendering of the new R15.

  • k72 Racing team

    Can u explain it more clearly ,where the picture is from ?

    • fas

      Autocar India.

  • k72Racing Team

    @fas : Thanks for the update. Whether this machine exist, if so whether its going to launch between march and april bcoz on the other side , yamaha r125 is going to be launched in april.i am not sure about the info of yamaha r125 , just got update from the post that published in this site.Whether any info about the R125 in autocar india magazine ?

    • fas

      K71, no Yamaha R125 for India. The post is of last years and was an April fools joke.

  • k72Racing Team

    @fas:i have mailed yamaha india more than 15 times regarding the new R15, they say ” no recent plans to launch this machine” everytime. whether u have any idea about the launching date exactly or some what nearer to the launching date.

    • fas

      K72, Yamaha will never agree that a new version is in the pipe line because that would stop sales of the older version.

  • k72Racing Team

    @fas :Thanks dude for the update.
    Waiting for the machine for a long time, i hope that it will be launched before march.As you know that certain website (Including MotorBeam)have updated a post regarding the MotoGP yesterday
    (02/22/2011) and they have included a line about new R15 will be launched between feb and march, where motorbeam reposted the Mini R6.Other Company are ready to lanuch their updated 2011 model machine like Karizma ZMR ,ABS Apache,HOnda CBR. If these machines hit the road before the New Yamaha R15, i am sure that market of yamaha will go down.

    • fas

      K72, there is news of the new Yamaha R15 being launched by April. We can only wait as Yamaha has not confirmed anything yet.

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas: Oh… ho ..thanks again for the update. where did you got the source dude.

    • fas

      K72, Autocar.

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas:Whether this is march edition. i dont have idea about the autocar magazine. let me know

    • fas

      K72, its on their website as well.

  • K72 Racing Team

    Got It ….. :-)

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : Hi Dude ,Any updates on launching date for this machine . In autocar they have not posted which month to be launched.

    • fas

      K72, no update yet.

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : Thanks for the update dude . whether it will be launched within the march end

    • fas

      K72, there is no confirmation but once the Honda CBR250R get launched, Yamaha is bound to react.

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas: whether honda has confirmed the launch date ? if so when it will be launched

    • fas

      K72, the CBR250R will be launched in April.

  • kri

    its confmd , some yamaha showroom has started the booking for it its lunchng in 1st wk of april i have booked mine , thy tld me tht thy will call me to see the bike whn it launch

  • K72 Racing Team

    @Kri : Hi dude thanks for the update.May i know which showroom and its place

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas: Hey dude ….any updates.

    • fas

      K72, Yamaha India has confirmed about the launch of two new bikes this year along with refresh of current bikes.

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas : i have inquired about the new R15 launch in showroom(Chennai), the answer was negative. :-(

    A comment from “Kri” might be the older version of R15.

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas: Hey dude , as per the recent post in yamaha ,their will be two new bikes to be launched ,and they have not mentioned about the revised version of R15

  • fas

    K72, Yamaha did not mention about new R15 but they did say about refreshing their products in 2011 and the R15 is the bike which really needs a refresh.

  • arjun

    hey guys ,
    Did any body can advice me about the releasing date of new r15 ?
    Please. Please.
    If you got any news mail to me .my id is arjun756@gmail.com

  • Deepak

    Guys do u really this that Yamaha is gonna launch this bike after the devastation what JAPAN has seen past few days??
    Is this really gonna effect the bike to release in INDIA?? Any idea guys?

  • K72 Racing Team

    @fas: Hi dude, check out “Deepak” comments for this post. the templates for new R15 will be imported from japan . so it seems the machine will be delayed…. :-(

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas: Any Updates …. ?

  • Deepak

    Even ‘m waiting desperately for updates. In a lot of confusion whether to go with the existing one’s or wait for the new one’s to arrive :(

  • k72 Racing Team

    @Deepak : same dilemma … i heard that the templates and some other parts are imported from Yamaha japan.i think has of now the 2011 R15 machine , wont be launching this march or at the end of april. waiting for this machine for a long time.

    @fas: …. ?

    • fas

      k72, temporary there is an affect on imports from Japan but things should get fine real soon. If Yamaha was planning to launch the 2011 R15 in April, they much have started manufacturing already and must have imported the parts from Japan.

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : it seems it will take more time , since the production department of yamaha japan located near the costal side. so if the production is done for new R15 and not shipped it will take atleast 6 to 8 months to be shipped due to the earth quake in japan .

    if the spares are reached india , then it will be launching in april.

  • Deepak

    @k72: Lets hope for the best, fingers crossed

  • Ricky

    I asked yamaha backoffice about new R15 and this is the response i got:

  • Deepak

    Even i’ve got the same reply from ‘em

  • k72 Racing Team

    as fas said before, yamaha wont say about the upcoming bikes launch date , bcoz the bikes which are in market now will go down . In april many companies planned to launch their 2011 model , hope so yamaha will launch their 2011 r15

  • Deepak

    Rightly said. they never announce that they’re gonna launch the new bike coz of the old stock. Lets hope for the best

  • k72 Racing Team

    We already know that , AutoCar india magazine has revealed the news about the 2011 R15 and its rendering images in their magazine. so it will be worth of waiting till april .

  • Deepak

    Hope they come up in april or atleast announce in april wen its gonna launch…

    Guys hope for the best!!!!!

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : Any updates …

    we are at the last weak of the march still no news about it

    • fas

      k72, the Honda CBR250R was just launched so a reply from Yamaha is expected soon.

  • Deepak

    Truely said… This is taking a toll out of me…. Wad the heck man no news nothing… getting bogged up

  • YO

    New R15 will out in july.this is pathetic from yamaha..but belive me guys..news is…it wont come out untill july atleast.

  • yo

    fas…I think yamaha waiting for honda CBR150 to launch..it priced 1 lakh..thats why they going to cut off new R15 price to 1 lakh..and also going to launch it after july…I am waiting for it from last november..don’t know how long I have to wait!!

    • fas

      Yo, why don’t you opt for the CBR250R? It will be slightly above your budget but its twice as fast.

  • yo

    I like yamaha..and I like new yamaha R15 look better than CBR250…hoping new R15 will come before july..

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : Hi

    Yamaha has recently said about 200-250cc bikes , but have not updated about the 2011 R15. whether u have any other go to know about the launch date for this bike. moreover , which bike will be launching first ,whether 2011 R15 or 200-250cc bikes

    • fas

      k72, the update took place 2 days ago. You have to check the home page for the latest news :)

      There is no confirmation on which bike will come first but the new R15 will should come before.

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : i know that this news was 2days ago… i tot u where one of the member of motorbeam, so that u have some offline news about new bikes esp 2011 R15.for tat reason i asked for you “whether u have any other go for the launching date of 2011 r15.”. And Everyone knows that the latest news will be published in Home page :-)

    • fas

      Sorry K72, if I said something confusing. Well there is no news from Yamaha on the 2011 R15 and I am waiting as impatiently as you are. As soon as any information is revealed, I will surely let you know.

  • Rahul

    hope it launches along with the yzf r125 .. :/

  • Deepak

    God common launch this bike as soon possible man… its frustrating :(

  • Rahul

    yeah .. damn frustrating ..!! :X

  • k72 Racing Team

    Testing my patience from the month of jan… still waiting for it

  • Want to Race

    I am also waiting for New Yamaha YFZ R-15 since January. I think its the best bike in its class. But as Yamaha is delaying the launch, Yamaha may suffer a dip in its market share. Yamaha India should come up with some statement and enlighted all its fans. It will be good for both Yamaha India and Yamaha’s fans.

  • Want to Race

    Finally Yamaha YFZ R15 is launching in few days.

  • yo

    Want to Race..when new R15 will launch..where didi u get the news of launching it soon?please inform.

  • Want to Race

    Hi Yo,

    Its mentioned in on of the auto site. Unfortunately I am not able to give the site address in the comments section. But the site has updated expected date yesterday itself. So something is around the corner. Lets be ready to book it, I do not want to wait once I book it.

  • yo

    ok..is this site name is…
    maxabout ???

    • fas

      If its Maxabout then we can’t say the news to be true because they do carry rumours.

  • k72 Racing Team

    @Want to Race : Can u update the site name ….instead of URL

  • Deepak

    @Want to race: Hey whr did u get info from? And wen is launch date?

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas : Hi ….. Any updates ?

  • Want to Race

    Yes, it is maxabout. But I am not sure about the site authenticity but I have been following there site from queit long for Yamaha R15 update and they have been updating the expected date section as and when they have some details. But I am sure something is around the corner. As Honda CBR250 is launched and has already crossed 2000 bookings, it has started creating a dent in Yamaha YFZ R15 sales. So Yamaha’s next move would be to atleast face lift YFZ R15.

  • k72 Racing Team

    fz1 has been launched in india and updated in yamaha india website. What in the earth they have launched the Fz1 which has 998cc.its better to launch less torque bike esp 2011 R15.:-(

  • Want to Race

    Hi @k72 Racing Team,

    Its bad move from Yamaha India. They have some good products but they always make bad business decision in launching there flagship vechicles and this is just not in India it is true also for other Asia countries. I am very much sure that many R15 fans have already switched to other bikes or are planning to switch. One cannot wait indefinitely for new Yahama R15. There should be some deadline. Only die hard fans like us will keep waiting, but at some point even we would give up if something new and exciting comes into the market.

  • Deepak

    Truely said… Very Frustrating at times… Since the the launch of

  • Deepak

    Since the launch of CBR 250 ppl are considering as a best replacement option to R15… Who knows even we might end up one day taking the CBR 250
    if yamaha has no plans to launch anywhere sooner?

  • Hunky

    what happened ?? any more news, its been over 5 months I guess, still nothing coming out from Yamaha..

  • Deepak

    I don think Yamaha is planning to launch this bike…. Waste of time

  • k72 Racing Team

    The launch date of CBR250R is postponed to the April End ……. i think something around the corner for yamaha :-)

  • Deepak

    Atleast we know that CBR 250 is launching some time around but with Yamaha its all in da air

  • Want to Race

    Hi @k72 Racing Team,

    I think the postponement of CBR250 can be related to the supply chain hicups. They will not change the specs/price which are already annouced. Moreover, CBR250 have already crossed 2000 bookings since the booking started. I think Yamaha will either have to launch (if they are launching) New Yamaha R15 soon or get new 250CC bike in the market. In either case, Yamaha is bound to lose market share. There sales in India have increased because of the FZ-16 and FZ-S-16.

  • k72 Racing Team

    In my perspective i think Honda CBR250R is not yet ready for indian road. As you know recently they have imported the spare for this machine.lets c…..

  • Deepak

    CBR 250 has got very good reviews from auto magazines…

  • k72 Racing Team

    The delay of 2011 R15 might be the yamaha india intergating the 200cc engine to this machine , but we also heard that the price is less than 10000 Rs…….

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas: whether u have any updates about the 2011 R15 …….

    _______________________________________________________________________
    what is the waiting period for the honda CBR250R… ?
    and i heard that the delivery going to commences on 22nd April 2011 in chennai… Do Reply

    • fas

      K72, no updates yet. Waiting period is 3-4 months. Yeah deliveries are starting soon. Did you see the pictures we snapped of the CBR250R?

  • k72 Racing Team

    Yep… looking great . Yamaha going to loose their valuable customer definitely if its going to be delayed for a couple of months

  • k72 Racing Team

    Yamaha india already said that two new bikes per year… if this is the case then yamaha india have already done their part by launching FZ1 and SZ-R.then obviously new machines in india is a big ? for this year

  • k72 Racing Team

    @fas: i have doubt that one of your post regarding the New R15 (Spy Shot r15) which is the same image has been posted above… the bike not yet launched in inida.. but it got registered and has a number plate of UP. whether its possible ….?

    • fas

      k72, its a test bike in most cases. Also Yamaha is surely going to launch a new R15, its just that they are delaying it for reasons best known to them. Could be due to part shortage (Japan earthquake could have affected them). Also they might want to clear current R15 stock before getting the new version.

  • arjun

    daamn…..
    I waited for a long time.
    I think yamaha does not like to launch the bike in thz year.i think no reason for waiting more..so yesterday i went to yamaha dealership office at thodupuzha and asked about it. They told me that they didnt get any newses from head office and cant say any thing about the launching date. They also heard this piece of news and the rumors..so they advice me to go for the existing r15…I confirmed my booking..i wl get r15 at next month.
    Frzt option is white limitted edition and second option is mid night black…:-)

  • k72 Racing Team

    whatever the case … how come a bike is registered and has a number plate without even tested in india… then the spyshot is not true.Its a Fake one na….But we are confident that a New R15 will be released and the only evidences is autocar india magazine.

  • Want2Race

    Hi All,

    I want to buy new R15 but its launch is delayed and Yamaha India is not coming clear on it. Can you guys pls suggest me from the below options:
    1. Buy Current Yamaha R15
    2. Buy Yamaha FZ-S 16.
    3. Wait for new Yamaha R15. I can wait only 2 weeks more now.

  • Hemant

    @Want32Race…I think you should wait for new R15. If it still does not come out, then go for the current R15.

  • k72 Racing Team

    Guys … ! the spy shot is not true…..this image is taken from the post R15/R125 spied. if you go through the images in it.. it will have same image has posted above and other images will have a number plate of UP. which is not possible at all.. how come a bike which had even launched officially can have number plate with UP registration….?

  • YO

    k72 ..it does not matter..I tlked to a yamaha showroom in Kolkata..and they told me ..new R15 will come..around end of july or august..maybe delivary date around september..BUT IT IS SURE THAT NEW R15 is comming..there is no doubt in that…if someone can’t wait any longer and anna bike some other bike.or old R15..that is there choice..but I will wait untill new R15 come out..YES YAMAHA

  • k72 Racing Team

    @Yo: I too spoked with the main dealer in chennai , the answer was negative.As u said that the release of this machine may be on september , it wont be bcoz yamaha india have already given a statement that two bikes per year.For this calendar year already FZ1 and SZ-R has been launched so new R15 will be lanched on 2012.Moreover the cost of the machine is high…we know that the New R15 will have price less than 10,000.So obviously some feature will be missing out in New R15 machine.

  • YO

    @k72..probably ..but..it does not count what yamaha told..because they told new R15 will be out in january 25…but it won’t…it all depend on 2 things I think…
    1)honda CBR 150 will come…and in the same time yamaha will launch new R15 …will lesser price..because with better feature honda CBR150 have price around 1 lakh..

    2)also..yamaha will untill old model of R15 finish…before that they wont tell a word

  • YO

    OHHHH MY GOD>..now there is a new rumour…it will be R25(a 250CC bike)…jesus!! yamaha going mad…is they do it..it will priced over 2 lakh..and it will loose the competetion from honda CBR250.

  • Hemant

    @YO: Hi, could you please tell about the source of this rumour?

  • k72 Racing Team

    @ All :

    Guys Dont plan and wait for the bike … just go for it …what your heart says…. :-) .Anyhow the updated version will be lined up has days passes by.

  • YO
  • k72 Racing Team

    The New R15 is almost done it seems . it has been updated in the MCN —http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/News/newsresults/New-bikes/2011/April/apr2111-new-yamaha-yzf-r15-no-compromise-hugger/— Expected soon on road.

  • k72 Racing Team
  • k72 Racing Team

    Guys : Hold Your Breath for two more months .. its almost their. The Dealers got the info regarding this and its is expected to be launched by June 2011…

    check out this link for more info from MCN

    • Deepak

      @K72: Is this supposed to be a new rumour or is it actually true. Since Jan we have been hearing only rumours not the actual facts.

  • yo

    hell ya………….
    @k72..I told ya…it will be launched around july…
    YES>>YAMAHA

  • Yogesh

    @k72,
    Is the booking for the bike started. If yes, then pls let me know how t book it.

  • k72 Racing Team

    The only thing Yamaha has to do to give some official information about it

  • k72 Racing Team

    @deepak: I just got the info about it and the same found in MCN.MCN is a famous website in UK and deals with Automobile.You can find MCN related Videos in Youtube.So the information must be true,but when inquired regarding this in showroom , they have not got any official info about it. I think the yamaha R15 older version is still in production and most perfer for it. This newer version might be a limited edition of R15.Fingers crossed.If yamaha india is not turning back next month Starting, obviously the bike will be launched on November or September

    • Deepak

      @k72: Thanks really for the info. Hope it launches within two months. It has been a long wait for all of us and it’ll be a refresher for all yamaha fans if they do so.
      hoping for the best

  • k72 Racing Team

    Hey guys … the delay might be integration of ABS system in the upcoming R15. has Apache has done a month back , this made the New R15 delay. the price of New R15 is expected to be higher than the previous version.We all know that the launching of New R15 Expected before , but now every indian sports bikes is with ABS system. So yamaha planning for the same.

  • yo

  • k72 Racing Team

    Hey guys … i bought the R15.. older one … The older version is classic version and looking great than the newer one, so i went for that. Absolutely stunning ride… And i have enquired about New R15. Right Now the production is stopped for Sport Edition(White Color) which resembles the New R15 is going to be launched soon.So Guys wait for it.

    • Want to Race

      Its good decesion. New R15 will not come to market till November 2011. So better buy the old one. Moreover, the pictures given above are of R125 and not R15.

  • k72 Racing Team

    The main reason , i got the older version is 2011 R15 has a matt finish in the side similar like R15 in first launch (Red Wine and Black Color).That looks odd.

      @k72: Cool buddy congrates :)

  • k72 Racing Team

    @deepak : Thanks dude

  • Deepak

    Guys any news?

  • arjun

    hey..
    As i mentioned in my comment in april 17 i booked limitted edition..
    But till now i wont get the byke. Yestrday went to showroom for clarification. They told me that production of white limitted edition is stopped by company and they are planning to launch a upgraded version in that place. I think it s the byke which you guys are seeking for. The officer told me thz upgraded version may be release at july or september.and price wil be greater than existing model. Around 115000 – 130000.

    • Deepak

      @Arjun: Which are u from?

  • Deepak

    Sry which area are u from?

  • k72 Racing Team

    As i mentioned earlier , the limited edition is stopped and the price of new R15 is high than the older one.So guys , those who are planning for the limited budget (111000), go for older one . New R15 cost more and expected with ABS Version of it.

    • Deepak

      @k72: I guess ppl are just waiting for the launch date, rather than the price of the bike. If the launch is somewhr around then ppl would just go for it.

  • Deepak

    Guys any news so far?

    • YO

      no..as I said..it will be out around July-August.Price will be little bit more than current version probably.

  • Deepak

    @Yo: Its worth waiting this while looking at the current pics… Amazing hope it launches soon :(

    • YO

      yup..it will launch on 14th June..but there is some problem..is it really R15 or R125 ..or R25……a 150 cc bike can’t be 22ps..if it really do..then yamaha is awesome..but then fuel consumption will be less..around 20 kmpl…that *****.

      • Deepak

        14th june?? Whr did u get this info from??

      • Deepak

        Yo: There is all possibility for yamaha to increase the BHP to 22, it just the matter of ECU programming. If u see MOTO GP, a 125cc engine bike produces an outstanding 50-55 BHP with a top speed of almost 200-250 kmph all coz of tuning the ECU.

        • YO

          true…but ..fuel efficiency will be much less

          • Deepak

            Obviously fuel economy will be less…

      • Deepak

        @Yo: How did u get to know dat its gonna launch on 14 Jun?

  • k72 Racing Team

    @ all :
    *Hey guys , hearty adavance congrats to all for going to buy new r15. Really Stunning …. My choice will be older one itself , since the new one will have more power , and obviously it will affect the mileage. Anyways passionate of new r15. It seems to be the cost will be high…..? than the older one.

    *Hope it will be launched in ABS , since TVS started their safe ride in roads.

    @fas :Any updates or offline news about price….?

    • raj

    • kal

      i kno da aproxcimately of dis bike its around 11111

  • Dj

    I was wondering that can we modify its tank? its very small just like old R15.. i mean to get more sportier look!! will it require too much altering? Well actually its not bike’s fault.. I’v became huge fan of R125 thats why i want a bike somewhat like it.. any suggestion abt any sporty bike? my budget is 1.4 lakh or will u recommend me R15 2011 only?

    • aj

      Your budget of 1.4Lakh,if we raise the envelope a little bit and spend 1.68lakh(on road),you will get a Honda CBR250

      • Dj

        but every1 says CBR is not so good bike… + i also did’nt found it good.. i mean road presence is not much.. & sound is not good.. so.. k thanx for ur help.. well i’v changed my mind.. will get a gypsy ryt now.. & after 3 years i’l sell it & get harley :D.. cheers
